This video features interesting interviews given by the owners of Urwerk (Baumgartner & Frei), watch designers and an introduction of the Urwerk employees. In the first quarter of 2008, I had the pleasure to see an Urwerk watch in a The Hour Glass shop in the Millenia Walk shoppingcenter in Singapore. An incredible timepiece! It was a business trip (non-watch related) and unfortunately I didn’t have the time to ask the sales person from The Hour Glass everything I wanted to know. This video answers most of my questions though 😉
